The 2013 Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund is seeking Business Sponsors
The 4th of July is less than two months away, and the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund is seeking business Sponsors to help raise money needed to continue this great local tradition.
Each year, Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood puts on the best barge-based, high-altitude professional fireworks show in the city on the 4th of July – a great, grassroots event where local businesses get excellent exposure to local residents!
This display is enjoyed by thousands of area residents, but it can’t be continued without donations – this is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that must raise $25,000 to keep this grand local tradition alive.
The fund’s new co-chairs this year are Fred Feiertag and Todd Manola, two 3TP residents who will do whatever it takes to pull this year’s event off.
“The Fireworks Fund needs $25,000 for this year’s event,” Feiertag said. “This includes fees for the professional pyrotechnics firm that puts on the show, as well as barge, tug, security, insurance, permit fees and dumpsters for the all-important 5th of July clean up.”
Donation Levels available for local businesses include:
- $5,000 Platinum Sponsor
- $2,500 Gold Sponsor
- $1,000 Silver Sponsor
- $500 Community Sponsor

In the famous words of Uncle Sam…
Although mostly funded by private donations, support from business leaders like you helps keep this great homegrown tradition alive.

- Exposure to the eyeballs of this area’s most affluent residents.
- Grassroots marketing to your local customer base.
- Exclusive networking opportunities at our annual Neighborhood Donor Party on Saturday, June 29th.
- Your logo and link placed on the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund website.

Here’s more info from the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund website:
The Three Tree Point Fireworks celebration is supported entirely by donations from the communities of Three Tree Point, Seahurst, Normandy Park, Seola Beach, Arroyo Beach, Arbor Heights and others.
Our barge based, high-altitude fireworks show has gotten better every year thanks to countless people who have donated time and money.
In 2013, our goal is to keep the fireworks and community celebrations at the same great level that they have been at. This will be the fifth year we are seeking corporate sponsors for our event.
We raise funds from May–June to ensure we have time to get all the permits, insurance and the best vendors.
Originally started by the Miller family as a gift to The Three Tree Point Community, the fireworks tradition was continued by neighbors when the Millers moved away.
In addition to the fireworks, the neighborhood traditions of a community pancake breakfast, kids games, flag raising with awards, bike parade and more have been ushering in summer at our great community. What a great place to live!
